About Wine Crates
Wines once came in barrels and now come in boxes, but as a wine connoisseur, you know you can do a little better than that. Fortunately, there is a simple solution: wine crates. These handy storage and carrying containers serve practical and aesthetic functions. They keep your wine collection in one central location, and look much better than your old dusty shelves or cardboard boxes. Wine crates, like wines themselves, range in style and price, and are available from reliable sellers on eBay. Although many are newly constructed crates, vintage ones are also available for those interested in additional character. Most crates are made from various types of wood, such as fragrant pines and cedars. Others derive from richly colored oaks and walnuts. For storing wines in central locations, fragrant woods make a very good choice. Pine crates, for instance, leave a lingering fragrant scent in the air. They look nice in any space, but with intricate twists and knots, they have an antique feel to them and add a special charm to old-fashioned rooms. Mahogany and oak finishes are a popular choice among wine collectors as well, with the lighter shades fitting contemporary spaces well, while darker shades suit older homes and classic decor.
